Rabbit Hole with Jay and Rory fills the Wednesday slot famously held for the past six years by The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, which ended its run in October 2016. Gaston D-L from Meltdown, Inc. says, “The legacy of comedy on Wednesdays runs deep at Meltdown Comics; we have been putting on shows here for ten years now. We couldn’t be happier to have our flagship show be reincarnated with such qualified and familiar names as Jay and Rory. Keep the Wednesday energy alive and come laugh with us again!” The Meltdown Show producer Emily V. Gordon expresses her support for the new show as well: “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail are collectively stoked for the next chapter of Wednesday nights at Meltdown Comics knowing that Jay Larson and Rory Scovel are at the helm.”

About NerdMelt
To put it simply, the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics is comedy in the back of a comic book shop. Also known as NerdMelt, it’s an intimate space to see some of the best comedians, podcasts, panels, and art shows come to life. This room is the D.I.Y. beating heart of Los Angeles’s comedy community, thanks to Chris Hardwick’s vision of bringing the best, most unique entertainment to comedy lovers with the help of Program Director Caitlin Durante and the NerdMelt team. www.nerdmeltla.com

About the Hosts
Jay Larson is best known as a stand up comedian with multiple appearances on The Late Late Show, four appearances on Conan, and his own half hour special on Comedy Central. Jay’s style is completely original and his ability to connect to an audience through storytelling is unmatched. Jay’s Storytelling has been featured on This American Life with Ira Glass, Comedy Central’s This is Not Happening, and can be heard every Toozdee on his wildly successful podcast, The CrabFeast. Jay’s first album, Self Diagnosed, was released in 2011 by AST records, and his follow up album, Human Math, was released this Fall. But at the end of the day, the job that gives Jay the most satisfaction is being a father to his two kids.
